I agree with the decision of the Chinese’s government to construct the Three Gorges Dam because it will not only help end the deadly floods that happen in the area every five years, it will also allow many in the inland area to enjoy a better quality of life and also allow the emission free hydroelectric generation of electricity. The population of China is in desperate
The traits of settling along rivers, living in a fertile land and separating from other civilizations help shape the development of China. First, the civilization of China was developed along rivers, and what these rivers have brought to China is huge. According to Mr. Wright, “Two major geographical realities in China are the Yellow and Yangtze River.”1 Especially the Yellow River, it played an important role in the development of China. Wright also said “Its greatest benefit is, of course, the water and soil it carries.”2 Rivers mean the existence of water and water means life. What rivers bring to people is infinite—water, foods, plants, vitality.
Path And The Safe Water Project objective was to target countries such as India, Vietnam, Cambodia, and Kenya that were using unimproved water sources heavely for drinking, the main goal is to improve access to safe water through Innovative Sales and Distribution Models. Creating a distrubiton channel and letting these four countries use The Safe Water Project products is way for building a relationship, and having their products as a solution for the people to buy, and create a poistive effect to society. The company goal is to create different sales strategies to increase sales for their products, and also help improve the country,by accessing a safe water treatment for their society. Creating a product that can generate sales and help improve a soceity, can build a good reputation and recognition for your company. Path is a Seattle-based non-profit organization committed to delivering high-impact, low- cost solutions to global health challenges.
Edwin Chadwick was a civil servant in London who devoted his life to sanitary reform in Britain. Chadwick’s role was important in improving public health because he documented the living conditions far more accurately than ever before and thus could create suitable solutions to longstanding problems. His first significant contribution to gaining support for legislation was in 1883 when he wrote a report for the Poor Law Enquiry leading to the 1834 Poor Law. Chadwick followed this up by investigating the connection between the poor law and public health arguing that because disease caused pauperism, the prevention of this did fall to the Poor Law Guardians. The reports confirmed what had previously been found out about the connections between health and living conditions but more importantly, they suggested how improvements could be investigated.
Chinese farmers developed irrigation systems that improved rice farming. Rice became the most important crop but it grew in the humid. To keep rice paddies wet farmers developed irrigation systems such as pumps and other water control devices. With this kind of technology farmers could harvest two or three crops a year. As a result, more food was available to feed more people and population swelled.
The Hans had discovered the benefits of technology from as early as “early second century B.C.E” (Doc 1), understanding that it could help later develop their own nation. Technology was used in order to “save common people’s labor” (Doc 4) which lead to many inventions of useful tools such as the “pestle and the mortar” (Doc 3) and the “water-powered blowing-engine” (Doc 4). Even though most of the documents were written by upper-class Chinese philosophers and government officials, they still understood thenecessity of technology in order to increase productivity “a hundredfold” (Doc 3). Hans accepted technology and their dependency on it during times such as when needing to establish “water conservation officies” (Doc 1). According to Document 1 the government official who wrote it wanted to prevent the flood with the establishment of water conversation offices.
Condensed laundering of linens, at customer prudence, has already been adopted passionately across the range of budget to opulent hotels. Low-flow bathe heads for minimal but efficient usage of water has been applied in many American hotels to check water crisis. Fluorescent bulbs are being used by many of the hotels at present to cut down the electricity bill and thereby initiating the power saving movement. Hotel like Fairmont Hotels & Resorts has generated substantial reserves since implementing its ecological programs. Although anxiety for the environment drove Fairmont’s curriculum, many of its initiatives gave rise to benefits.
After China became the People’s Republic; the Chinese people have enjoyed an improvement in their sanitation, medicine, and lifestyle. These improvements caused a population explosion, which was proudly advocated by Chairman Mao Zedong in 1948, who thought more people meant more money, and subsequently, more power (Fitzpatrick, 2009). Unfortunately, the ever increasing population was badly impacting their national food supply, which initiated the start of China’s plan to control their population (Fitzpatrick, 2009). China has had multiple failed attempts on trying to reduce their fertility rate (Fitzpatrick, 2009). Ultimately, the most effective solution became the one child policy, which was implemented in 1979 (Fitzpatrick, 2009).
The expansion of cities and industry has led to concerns about water pollution, despite governments promoting the cleanliness and safety of municipal water sources. Additionally, the growth of large metropolitans has caused a shift in our lifestyle. This means we are in a perpetual rush. Bottled water plays a highly utilitarian role by providing a simple solution to both these problems. The popularity of this “solution” is apparent in the $22 billion USD average annual revenue of the industry.
Fluoride in drinking water plays a factor in reducing the tooth decay during the past several decades. Take for example; a study done by the Fluoride Technical Study Group (FTSG) of Ft, Collins, Colorado said that fluoridation saves $4.25 per person a year in dental costs. This is indeed an asset towards sodium fluoride in drinking water because if this was ignored you could get a cavity, ultimately having you to have to pay more than $4.25 to repair the tooth. It should also be kept in mind that whatever has benefits also has risks to it. There has been some controversy in adding Fluoride being known as a toxic substande.
